Threats to Academic Freedom on U.S. Campuses: Antisemitism and Islamophobia in the Struggle for Human Rights in Israel/Palestine
Wednesday, February 26, 2020 6:30 PM - 9:00 PM
Fromm Hall 120 - Xavier Auditorium
Renowned critical feminist scholar and political philosopher, Judith Butler, will be the keynote speaker at this forum examining the implications on academic freedom. Butler is not only Maxine Elliot Professor in the Department of Comparative Literature and the Program of Critical Theory at UC Berkeley, but also she has been outspoken about current threats against academic freedom and how the charge of anti-Semitism against the movement for Boycott, Sanctions and Divestment (BDS) is being used to suppress activism.
